    The 8L does not have this feature,,
    have you tried holding the button on the remote for the windows?

    The window thing needs to be programmed in via VAGCOM.

    Not always. Sometimes it's enabled but it depends on the dealer the car was sold from.

    Bringing it back into the light, anyone managed this? Even if it was side lights and / or fogs.

    Cheers Paul, that looks a fair bit of work lol. I was thinking that it might be possible to take a feed from somewhere else just to turn on the side lights. Possibly like I have done for my footwell lights that come on with unlock and when the big light switch is turned on.

    Yeh I like the look of that one he has that fits behind the dash. Think I’ll order one of them and then see if I can remove the pin for the headlights so just the sidelights come on rather than the dipped beam.

    You can change the settings so shouldn’t have to remove any pins

    Is this kit plug and play in the S3 8L?

    If I leave it on auto the lights go off when I lock the car and come on automatically as required?

    Thanks

    I leave mine on AUTO now

    in the dusk the parkers come on

    when it's darker the low beams and foggies come on

    when i lock the car - the headlighs/tail lights stay on for whatever time you set it to

    turn off by themselves

    they work brilliantly !

    nah i didn't but it basically entails swapping the knob from the aftermarket unit onto the OEM housing.

    you gotta force it off and it feels like it's going to break - but it gives in the end.

    the rest is self explanatory when you go to put it all together

    Fitted the kit but on mine all the lights seem to be coming on straight away except drivers inside main beam.

    Is there any way of configuring what comes on when?

    Thanks

    The light sensor is configurable. You need to set it so it’s in learning mode.

    Shine a bright as LED right onto the sensor to Change it’s setting.

    I don’t mine comes on “staged”.

    Park lights when ambient lights are low.

    Everything when it’s dark.
